We have a very limited number of Enrichment scholarships available. If your family has a significant need and cannot afford any enrichment classes, please email Sally_Whitelock@dpsk12.net with your situation, your child’s name and grade and the enrichment class of choice. Limit-one Enrichment scholarship per year.

If you wish to sign your child up for an enrichment class, please be aware of the following important information. A PDF of this information is available here

  • After school enrichment classes are run by independent providers or DPS teachers who are renting a space at Edison to provide this service. These providers are not supervised or overseen by the school leadership or the Edison enrichment coordinator (Valerie Lovato, kindergarten teacher) however, they do complete an application and a background check in order to be approved to lead a class at our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the provider(s).
  • Parents need to register and pay for each class that they wish their child to participate in.
  • Edison is using a platform called Homeroom for registrations.
  • After school classes are typically held one day per week and will run from 3:30-4:30 PM.
    • The Spring Enrichment classes will start the week of January 16th and end the week of May 6th there is a make-up week if needed the week of May 13th. 
    • Homeroom will go ‘live’ for families to start signing up for classes on January 2nd.
  • Pick up after school classes:
    • For students in ECE-K:  At 3:25, Edison EXTRA Enrichment providers will pick up ECE and Kinder students from their classrooms and sign them out. 
    • For students in 1st-5th grades: At 3:25 pm, all Edison 1st-5th grade students will be dismissed on the east side of the building. Students participating in Edison EXTRA Enrichment programs will be dismissed by their classroom teachers and sent to the picnic table area near the steps to the school library to join their enrichment provider. 
    • Discovery Link Families:  If your child normally attends Discovery Link, then the parents of children participating in Discovery Link will need to complete an Enrichment Provider Form. These forms are available at Edison’s Discovery Link and need to be completed prior to each activity (or session) and for each individual child. On days your child is registered for enrichment activities your child will go directly to his/her enrichment activity at the end of the school day. The enrichment provider is responsible for ensuring your child gets to Discovery Link at the end of the enrichment program. Students who also attend Discovery Link DO NOT go to Discovery Link first, they proceed directly to the Edison EXTRA Enrichment pickup area. 
  • At the end of the class: The provider will walk ALL students to the main entrance (on the front or west side) of the school and take them outside to meet their parents or those authorized to pick them up. Parents are asked to please be on time and wait outside. When all the regular students have been picked up the provider must walk their Discovery Link students to the appropriate location and sign them in.
